Thrifty Car Rental Manchester Airport

Manchester Airport opened to airline traffic in June 1938 and was initially known as a Ringway Airport and during World War II, as RAF Ringway (RAF is short for Royal Air Force). From 1975 until 1986, the title Manchester International Airport was used. Thrifty Car Rental provides quick and easy access to affordable and comfortable car rental services.

Manchester Airport has two parallel runways, the second of which opened in 2001. The airport has three adjacent terminals and a railway station. Manchester Airport is owned by the Manchester Airport Group, which is controlled by a group of 10 local authorities in the Greater Manchester area.
Manchester Airport welcomes non-traveling visitors; especially those who enjoy watching aircrafts take off and land. So, they've laid on some very special plane observation facilities just for those visitors.

The Spectator Terrace provides visitors with an excellent spot to view aircraft take off and land. Manchester Airport also offers many tours ranging from educational tours to children's birthday parties.

Alternatively the Viewing Park offers excellent views and exhibits, along with the chance to view the amazing Concorde on show. There is an informative visitors centre, aviation shop and catering outlet where you can enjoy light refreshments.
